This document is 100 % free for commercial and for non commercial use, the book was published before 1915 and is therefore entirely free of any copyrights.

For reasons of time, momentarily, most maps are publicized only as raw file resp. merely with a simple color correction. However, the publication is complete, all images and all raw image scans have a prepress suitable resolution of 300 dpi (scanner model: Mustek A3 1200 S).
To each document, the original raw scan is publicized. The present raw scans are, without exception, uncompressed TIFF files, containing all the original information. Look at the right, under the "show all" column.
For the prepress preparation (high color depth and a suitable color space), the free, platform independent available raster graphics editor Krita (https://krita.org) as well as the also free and platform independent graphical oriented DTP software Scribus (https://www.scribus.net) are very advisable.
By virtue of many suggestions, which reached us since the appearance of our „Atlas für die Bayerischen Mittelschulen“ [Atlas for the Bavarian Intermediate Schools], we have decided to manufacture a further edition in the desired considerable smaller format of 34 cm height and 22 cm width and to market it under the title “LORECK und WINTER, Atlas für Höhere Lehranstalten” Ausgabe B” [“LORECK and WINTER”, Atlas for Higher Educational Institutions, Edition B”]
In this revamped work the content has been extended almost twice as much. Moreover, especially the maps of the European countries haven been reshaped in such a way, that they further intertwine.
The scales of the maps are brought into accord among themselves and all maps are now laid so, that a turn of the atlas is no longer necessary at use.
The extensions of the atlas partly consist of the special depiction of geographic important and interesting territories, part in detailed description of the geological, climatic and economic conditions; namely the geological conditions also of the single European countries are depicted on special [little] maps.
A special diligence is devoted to the depiction of the Germanity, by not only the foreign languages in the German Reich and the German colonies in Europe are recorded, but also the settlements of the Germans in South America, Australia and South Africa etc. are recorded on own [little] maps.
The “comparison maps” might awaken the greatest interest, these are maps on which non-European ratios are assigned on European countries.
For those interested, who appreciate large map images, it is pointed out, that our hitherto atlas in the format 39 ½ x 26 cm, which we have expanded from 74 pages to 126 pages and for which the mentioned improvements are also apply, is published further on under the title „LORECK und WINTER, Atlas für Höhere Lehranstalten“, and simultaneously will come into the trade at the price of [Reichs]Marks 7.-.
Also as hitherto, this edition can be obtained in four parts.
With the thanks, which we want to express at this point to the many friends of our company,
for their valuable suggestions regarding the aformentioned reworks and which is, in particular, dedicated to the Verlagsbuchhandlung Chr. Herm. Tauchnitz in Leipzig, for providing the map on “Die Vergletscherung im deutschen Alpenvorlande” [“The glaciation in the German Alpine foreland”] we connect the request to all who belong to the teaching profession or close standing interested parties, to communicate to us possible wishes and suggestions in regard to further improvements and supplements; at any time and as far as possible, we gladly will take those into account in our both editions.
